If anybody is of the belief that Chelsea’s lack of a world-class striker could be set to end with the January transfer window signing of Gonzalo Higuain, they look set to be disappointed.

In the past couple of weeks, speculation, as covered by Vital Chelsea, Click Here, has inferred that the striker, who is on loan at AC Milan, could be sold by his parent club, Juventus.

However, the media vehicle, Goal, is reporting that Chelsea have decided that the 31-year-old Argentine striker is not the man to solve their ongoing problem and will not be making a move for the player, this January.

Here at Vital Chelsea, we’re of the opinion it is probably a sensible decision.

At 31-years-of-age, Higuain is on the wane and is untried in the rough and tumble of the Premier League, surely there are younger alternatives that could be snapped up and give Chelsea a far better return for the outlay.

    Good decision by Chelsea to plug the signing of Higuain. We are tired of having no reliable striker s. Sluggish Morata should be sent packing. Get a sharp Striker for us, …Chelsea Hierarchy. Abdul

    • I Chelsea board confused now years,
      Clubs in epl are buying good strikers and seeking somebody like higuin

  • Tammy Abraham and Michael Batshuayi are young, talented and fast. Give them a quarter of the time you gave Morata and watch them deliver.

  • For an immediate or a shot term solution, Higuain fits the bill, but with a looming FIFA ban hovering over the Blues, Chelsea must dismantle all roadblocks and sign an excellent striker this winter.
